The other day one of my partners was grumpy because a pharmacy assistant had doubted his diagnosis. Scandalous! I too came across one of these fearsome creatures recently, and on her own ground as well.
I may be fortunate but I am not immune to all afflictions, and I recently developed athlete's foot. So I went to the pharmacy to see what they would offer me. I wasn't particularly keen to have Daktarin because I have previously found it to be ineffective. Without prompting the assistant steered me away from the Daktarin and suggested that I should buy some Lamisil cream "because people find that it works very well". It was not expensive, and just what I would have chosen myself!
Not only is my toothache better but my toes are now becoming less itchy. Work is going quite well, my family are doing alright and my wife still likes me. I am indeed fortunate.
